Monoclonal antibodies specific for prothrombin fragment 1.2 and their use in a quantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

Prothrombin fragment 1.2 (F1.2) is an activation peptide generated during a critical event of blood coagulation, the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin. As a marker of thrombin generation, F1.2 has clinical potential in assessing thrombotic risk and monitoring anticoagulant therapy. In developing a highly specific, monoclonal antibody-based immunoassay… (More)
